With her blonde hair and bewitching eyes, Laura Hofmann has the sort of looks that could incite whiplash. But don't confuse this German-born beauty as just another pretty face. At the young age of 23, Hofmann has already staked her claim as a fashion entrepreneur to watch thanks to the recent launch of her style-centric site Likette.com.
